Abstract

Electron cyclotron resonance heating and electron cyclotron current drive (ECCD) in the W7-X stellarator, which is presently under construction, are investigated by means of a ray-tracing code. Two heating schemes are considered: launching of extraordinary and ordinary waves from the low magnetic field side at the second harmonic of the electron cyclotron frequency.
